The United States has been in a state of mourning ever since the deadliest shooting in the nation’s history took place at a Jason Aldean concert in Las Vegas. Now that the city of Las Vegas is left to pick up the pieces in the wake of this tragedy, comfort dogs from all over the country are arriving to assist those who are stricken by grief.
These dogs have been sent by a multitude of charity groups and their goal is to help people heal, as well as making sure that their spirits remain high. The dogs have gotten right to work and already visiting people in a number of different areas. They are also making the rounds at local hospitals and visiting as many of the shooting victims as possible (in addition to their families).
Comfort dogs are tremendously helpful during moments like these, as they allow those who have experienced a difficult tragedy to process the events that have taken place. Schoolchildren whose classmates were shot have benefited immensely from the unique care that comfort dogs are able to offer. These dogs were even present for a vigil that took place at the scene of the actual shooting.
These beautiful pups have an innate sense of empathy and they know just how to make people feel better, even when these people believe that they will remain sad forever. The first responders who made their way to the scene are happy to assist as well, but these people need the sort of unique help that only the best comfort dogs are able to offer.
When a tragedy like this one takes place, it can be difficult to realize that you are not alone in the world. These dogs are responsible for letting the people who have been affected by the shootings know that they will always be able to pass off their burden to other caring souls. The dogs serve as a bridge that allows the victims to feel more comfortable talking about the incident, so that they can eventually move past it.
